Nativity Scenes at the Cambridge Historical Association

The Cambridge Historical Association has over twenty Nativity scenes on display. These were collected over the years by the Wheelers, often a couple of pieces a year. They include some handmade sets. Stop in to enjoy these during the Christmas season. And receive a candy cane as well.

Cambridge Water Towers

The old Cambridge water tower was recently taken out of service and will eventually be removed.
Our "Cambridge, Iowa The First 150 Years" book shows it on page 36 shortly after it was built in 1920. Page 32 has a more recent view of it behind the City Hall, similar to the top picture.
Below it the new water tower west of town is shown as you drive toward Cambridge.
